User Reviews

A very enjoyable light italian comedy
20 October 1999 | by moriarti-2See all my reviews

Il conte Tacchia is very enjoyable light comedy. The story is pretty original. This is the story of the son of a carpenter who always dreamed to belong to royalty around the turn of the century in Rome. He gets the chance to rub elbows with the aristocrats and discovers that he cannot be who he is not, and finally realizes what is really important. Montesano is very funny, and Gassman is fabulous. See it if you have the chance.
